On November 9, 2017 Jessica (Jessie) Fernandez (Class of 2018) signed a National Letter of Intent for Saint Joseph’s University where she will be a member of the SJU Hawks Women Rowing Team. Jessie plans to major in Marketing as she pursues her sport and studies At SJU in Philadelphia.
To get to where she is today, Jessie has earned 2 Varsity Crew letters and rowed over 1000 hours as a member of Miami Rowing Club in Key Biscayne and competed in numerous regattas. The Urban Dictionary defines Crew as “the sport of gods, it requires constant physical exertion, perfect poise, balance, timing, awareness, brute force, and a sensitive touch”, and this Carrollton student/athlete has conformed to these requirements gracefully. Along the way Jessie has practiced perseverance, discipline, integrity, and team spirit. And, as we all know, Jessie has the spirit of a champion and that is why St. Joseph’s University has chosen her to sign on to their team today.
Congratulations, Jessica Fernandez!
